KÄNDISAR Den gamla humbugen Karl Marx hade inte helt fel när han hävdade att historien upprepar sig först som tragedi och sedan som fars.

Vem hade t.ex. kunnat gissat att Donald Trump idag skulle vara republikanska partiets frontrunner?

Och i år, under sitt plattityd fyllda tal under MTV:s Video Music Awards, meddelade Kayne West att han tänker ställa upp och kandidera inför presidentvalet 2020.

If my grandfather was here right now, he would not let me back down. I dunno what I fittin’ to lose after this. It don’t matter, though, because it’s not about me. It’s about ideas. New ideas. People that believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could’ve guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.

Barry Blitt spann vidare på detta när han tecknade omslaget “2020 Vision” för The New Yorker.

Inspirationen hämtade han från Chicago Daily Tribune som, baserat på tidiga siffror, felaktigt förespådde att Thomas Dewey skulle besegra Harry Truman i valet 1948.

“Suiting Up” av Mark Ulriksen

”The primary campaign may look like a pickup game about to descend into a brawl, but there’s a national candidate somewhere in the lineup”, skriver Amy Davidson med anledning av Ulriksens omslagsbild.

“Behind these Republicans, there is a face in the locker-room door’s window: Hillary Clinton, peeking in. Once they’re done with their intramural shoving match, they’ll mostly likely have to play against her.”

Omslagsteckningen av Barry Blitt heter ”Clinton’s Emoji”. ”Where would we be without emoticons, emoji, and sideways winky faces typed out of punctuation marks?”, frågar Blitt. ”I feel sorry for the alphabet. I’m waiting for the first original novel to be composed solely with emoticons. Oh, and Hillary Clinton.”
